Demonstration against Police Violence Leads to Violence

A demonstration against police violence and discrimination led to violence and arrests in The Hague. Fifty demonstrators stood in front of the municipality to demand the resignation of Mayor Jozias van Aartsen and Police Chief Paul van Musscher. They did so because the police agent who shot 17 year old Rishi Chandrikasing after a chase, was not found guilty by the court. Two demonstrators were arrested after they beat policemen with sticks. A third one was arrested because he didn’t identify himself. A spokesman of the demonstrators blamed the violence on the police.
